    now after this 253* Amla is averaging more then De Villers and Prince and Duminy is no where near him, his average is only 32

    Hashim Amla - The new wall?

    Without a doubt Hashim Amla has secured his Test place, its only a matter of time before he is a permanent fixture in the ODI side.

    He seems to be one of the most calm and composed batsman today and very modest.

    Which South African batsman (past/current) does he most remind you off?

    Which International batsman does he compare best with and where do you think his future is heading.

    None. There has been no South African batsman remotely like him since readmission. I'm not familiar enough with many if any of the pre-isolation batsmen to be able to compare.

    3 innings' don't prove very much, he's experienced such astronomical average jumps before now as well.

    Cant believe that the Indians didnt watch or ignored (maybe just werent good enough) what everyone else sees

    Early on, he plays across everything and a full, straight ball is generally good enough

    I expect him to average late 30s/early 40s over his career and that will do justice to what is a pretty poor technique for a top order player

    Some people at Eden were also stupidly saying that he is the new Dravid. It will take a few more innings though, as Richard said.

    I met him when he last toured with South Africa to Calcutta. He is genuinely nice. That much I can say. Happy to see him do well.

    If you were picking a World XI on form Amla would be your number 3 atm. Liked what I saw of him last time he came to Australia, could absolutely plunder runs next time he comes here.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
